FFA Enrichment Center
Stine and others from Iowa’s agriculture industry gathered at the FFA Enrichment Center in Ankeny to celebrate Iowa’s leadership in corn production. Stine donated the seed planted on April 20 by the Iowa FFA Association and the Iowa Corn Growers Association as a salute to the learning center’s dedication in preparing high school and college-aged students for careers in agriculture.
“We’re proud to continue supporting the FFA,” said Myron Stine, Vice President of Sales at Stine Seed Company. “The FFA Enrichment Center has been home to many programs to develop future growers and agronomists for our industry. It’s been exciting to see the long-awaited dream of this building come to life.”
For the fourth consecutive year, Stine is giving students an opportunity to sell donated seed as a fundraiser for their local FFA chapter and for the final costs of the FFA Enrichment Center. Last year, around 40 chapters participated and sold a total of 1,500 bags of Stine Seed corn. Participating students have gained valuable real-world experience in agribusiness, seed sales and agronomics while raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Iowa FFA Foundation and their local chapters.
